    The food was good, the restroom smelled, but the most important thing is the A/C, they need to keep it running because it gets really, my husband and kids were sweating so much to a point they had to go outside few times. Just imagine that even outside is hot it was cooler than inside.. but really they need to keep the air going.

    Be very careful this place charged me twice the same evening when their machine had problems. Stephen, the unhelpful manager said he couldn’t find the charge- I offered the credit card statement. He said I would have to come in. Needless to say I will be filing a fraud claim with chase but you all need to be aware of this dishonesty.

    The restaurant was very loud and hot. Once the grill was turned on - so up went the heat. Waitress was new and try her best to explain the meat’s menu but anything else we had to pull out of her. Reservations was for six people - there was 4 mushrooms and zucchini. The 1/2 cup of corn was also tiny. The garlic noodles and fried rice were also small portions - needless to say we had to reorder - as there wasn’t enough to go around. Both the noodles and rice were very tasty.

    Horrible service in this location! If you want this restaurant, go to another location. They are so rude and took forever! It’s SO hot Inside as well since the grill is right in front of you.

    We are here in celebration of our twins birthday. This is their favorite place to eat and ours as well. The service is always top notch and the food is great. Highly recommend eating here. Just make sure you make a reservation or you will have a long wait.

    Upon entering the restaurant I was prompted to wait. I had no problem with this and sat down. Shortly after the lead server named Karen decided it was ok to seat another customer immediately after they walked in even though she had previously told me to wait. When I decided to speak up regarding the issue, the other customer replied with an assertive tone stating "they didn't know I was waiting." While this is true and I didn't want an issue with this person.. Karen did know and decided to treat my friends and myself with no respect. Following being seated the service was awful compared to other locations. Food did not come out in a timely manner and we consistently had to remind the staff to bring out missing items in the order.

    It was just too damn loud in there. The music was just blaring so loud it was hard to even carry on a conversation. When the server brought out the food, we couldn't hear what it was or the instructions on how to cook it. Most of the meat was very fatty causing flare ups on the fire. I loved my first visit here but this one was not nearly as good.

    The hostess was rude fron the beginning! One person from our party was running late and they would not sit us. 7 people and over $500 spent and we were treated like we were bothering them. Was given a qr code to see a menu while we waited and it wasn't work but she refused to give us an actual menu. The food was great and our server was great but your initial impression falls on the hostess who was rude.

    Excellent service! Some of our meat was a very fatty & even though there’s a barrier in between, I was sitting a little close to the party next to me which unsettles me during COVID if I hear a cough/sneeze. I’ve never done Japanese, but I have done Korean BBQ this way and I must say this place has my other place beat! Would definitely go back, but would prefer a booth next time.

    Toro beef was mostly fat today. Couldn’t chew it. I asked the server about it and he said that’s how it normally is. However the last 10 times I’ve ordered toro beef it never looked like that.

    Felt rushed by waiter. We had a party of 4 and was seated at a small table where we had no room to put all the dishes we ordered. The burner we had kept going on and off causing our meats to cook unevenly, therefore our foods didn’t taste that great. Manager didn’t even once come out to check the problem. Not worth the price we paid to go there. This will be the last time I go there or recommend any of my family and friends.
